[Full Text]



Dr. Fachrurazi



Islam, Commodification and Globalization



After the collapse of New Order regime one side, Indonesian Islam showed an interesting discourse another one. This situation gave opportunity to manage of Islamic expressions in public sphere. At the same time, Indonesian faced the globalization and commodification that affected the social relation and religious life as well. The encounter of Islam, globalization and commodification have been creating Islamization symbols in any forms, such as sharia business labels, Islamic self-help industries even effected the shifting of religious authority. This article examined the expression of Indonesian society after the reformation era. This research method used the critical cultural studies of the Frankfurt School. I argued that the expression of Islamic society after the reformation era was not only to understand in terms of increase of personal piety. But, the influencing of globalization and commodification elements were more dominant factors. In doing so, both the globalization and commodification of Islam have been leading of Indonesia Muslim society to moderate side, but they have scraped the Islamic values and spirituality itself.
